Showcasing Scottish, seasonal produce throughout their carefully crafted menu, at Glaschu you’re sure to get a truly celebratory taste of Scotland, making locals proud and tourists eager to stay for longer!

Salt and vinegar beef fat “chip”

What makes it a 'Food Hero' dish?

If there’s one thing Glaswegians pretty much all have in common, it’s our love of chips. So when we heard Glaschu was putting a big fat “chip” on their menu as part of Plate up for Glasgow, we got more than a little bit excited. This potato side dish is cooked in beef fat (saved from all the trim and cooking juices) leftover from other dishes, making use of kitchen by-products too flavoursome to see wasted. The dish is served alongside a confit garlic and beef fat aioli for chip dipping. Confiting is a great technique used for preserving, both extending the life of the garlic and imparting additional flavour. Making use of beef fat as the oil substitute in the aioli shows how an innovative approach to seeing every product as an ingredient, not waste, can give your dishes an extra edge.

Please bear in mind...

*Dining options showcased on the Plate up for Glasgow site are examples only, and are subject to change.

Please bear in mind that as a food waste campaign that focuses on using surplus ingredients, dining options may change regularly. We think this is something that should be celebrated – although it does make it difficult to know in advance which options you’ll be able to choose  from, or their availability. So when it’s gone, it’s gone. And when it’s gone, there’s no waste!

Participating venues are responsible for showcasing their own daily dining offers throughout the campaign period. We would strongly recommend contacting them directly to confirm details and availability before your visit to avoid disappointment.

Due to the nature of this campaign, catering for all dietary requirements may be limited. However, we have done our best to cater for as many needs as we can.

And of course, dining options are never created with ingredients that are past their sell-by date. “Leftover” food is just food that is surplus or unsold, which unfortunately happens all too often along food supply chains.
